“But this is what I commanded them, saying, ‘Obey My voice, and I will be your God, and you will be My people; and you will walk in all the way which I command you, that it may be well with you.’ 24 Yet they did not obey or incline their ear, but walked in their own counsels and in the stubbornness of their evil heart, and went backward and not forward…But they did not listen to me or pay attention. They were stiff-necked and did more evil than their ancestors” (Jeremiah 7:23-24, 26).
To walk in obedience is to move forward towards God and to walk in disobedience is to move backward towards evil. The Scripture teaches us that disobedience stiffens our necks to turn our heads towards God, and the more we disobey, the harder our necks become, as if we have casts around our necks. But, don’t worry! God prescribed “obedience” for our spiritual stiffened-neck syndrome, because obedience is like getting message therapy that softens our hardened necks to turn our heads to move forward towards God and to hear His voice.
